A comedy of Russian gangsters, town planners and a dog called Dennis. This hilarious story from Monty Python star, Terry Jones, will make you laugh out loud. Martin Thomas is not happy. The view he loves is about to be blocked by an ugly building. He decides to take action and forms a protest group. Then things go wrong and Martin finds himself running for his life. Along the way he gets mixed up with depressed town planners, violent gangsters and a kidnapped concert pianist. Martin starts to wonder if objecting to the building was such a good idea when he finds himself upside down with a gun in his mouth.

No B.S. reviews. I'll never soft-pedal bad writing or inept narration.
Not the most brilliant bit of writing, but inoffensive and entertaining.
Johathan Keeble's narration, however, is up to to his usual excellence. His characterizations actually save the book, in my view.
